How do I choose cycling glasses?

How your glasses fit your face will be important to you when cycling. Your frame should be close fitting to your face, with no additional pressure points behind your ears or on your nose. You should have a wide field of vision to ensure you can identify potential hazards and the frame should not obstruct your view. Our prescription Cycling glasses are unisex frames and so will provide a one-size fits for you to choose from but some of the frames have unique features that will suit some better than others. You can try all of our nonprescription glasses and return them for a 100% refund to ensure that you have the correct ones for your needs.
Some of the frames will have adjustable nose pads and temple arms which will help keep them securely on your face. Many of our cycling glasses are manufactured with rubber nose pads and rubber temple arms to keep them secure under sweaty, hot conditions while you cycle.
You should also consider trying the glasses on with your helmet in place. This will let you know whether the frame will be suitable for your existing equipment.
If you are purchasing a tint on your lenses you should also consider which color will be best for your environment. Brown or Grey will help with bright and sunny conditions while yellow or amber will aid with low light conditions.
If you are looking for a coating for your cycling glasses you can apply this in the prescription cycling glasses section. Coatings to consider would be anti-fogging or anti-reflective, both very useful when you are out on the road.
The price of your cycling glasses or prescription cycling glasses will depend on the additional elements that you add to them and not just the power of your prescription. Your glasses will be supplied with a hard carry case and a retainer cord.

Why do cyclists wear yellow glasses?

Within our environment, blue light is the most dominant light around us. This blue light means that our ability to see the contrast is greatly reduced. Cyclists wear yellow lenses on their glasses to help filter out the blue light which enhances the contrast around them. Yellow tints are favorable in low light conditions such as a cloudy day and can help to improve vision.

What colour of lens is best for cycling?

It is generally accepted that rose or amber tints are the optimum tints for cycling. These tints provide great contrast and field of vision and can be beneficial in both low light and sunny conditions. The contrast that these colors provide is second to none and therefore are used by those cycling on roads due to the clarity that they provide.
